Executive Summary

This project aims to develop and demonstrate a family of heavy-metal high-entropy alloy hohlraum materials that have an optimized inertial confinement fusion X-ray drive, large electrical resistivity needed for magnetically-assisted inertial confinement fusion implosion schemes, and other material properties compatible with the major target fabrication steps such as micro-machining, handling, and storage. The outcome of this project will be the super-hohlraum alloy which could enable a robust one megajoule yield  inertial confinement fusion platform for use in numerous future indirect-drive inertial confinement fusion and high-energy density experiments.
